Langford Lakes Christmas Tree Farm at Langford Budville will be open to visitors of all ages on Sunday 10th June from 11am to 4pm as part of Open Farm Sunday.
There will be a free activity trail, hands-on craft activities for children and a Craft Fayre where an estimated 25 local crafters will be selling their work.
Reg Hendy from the farm said: “We’re delighted to be taking part and supporting Open Farm Sunday for the second time this year.
“We’re inviting people to come along and take the opportunity to walk our Christmas tree plantations and see the trees mid growth when they are a pale green colour. Visitors will be able to stroll through our woods and bring a picnic to enjoy by our lakes.
“Light refreshments will be on offer in return for a donation to our Charity of the Year, Children’s Hospice South West, and we will also be hosting a raffle on its behalf. Our team will also be on hand during the day to answer any questions visitors might have about our farm.
“Open Farm Sunday is a fantastic opportunity for everyone, young and old, to discover first-hand what it takes to run our Christmas tree farm.”
Open Farm Sunday, managed by LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming), is one of the farming industry’s biggest success stories. Since the first Open Farm Sunday in 2006, more than 1,600 farmers across the UK have opened their gates and welcomed 2 million people onto their farm for one Sunday each year.
Reg added: “We’re based on 40 acres and a woodland runs the length of the plantations, either side of a stream. This area is home to a multitude of plants and wildlife, in particular rare lesser spotted orchids, deer and occasionally otters. People who visit us on Open Farm Sunday will be able to find out all about how we farm Christmas trees and also how we help and attract wildlife to the farm.”
